Have you ever gotten a gift from Tiffany's? From the lovely velvet pouch, beautiful blue bag and white satin ribbon... The packaging is as awesome as the lovely gift inside. How many of you kept the packaging too?
Genius packaging of a product - Right? Take that same logic when you are selling your home - Home Staging is packaging the product! And house stagers are genius' at packaging a home for sale.
Packaging the House to Sell
HGTV shows, lots of inventory and busy people who want to move right in without a fuss, make it imperative to hire a stager. If you are selling your home, you need to stage your home - Period. Today's buyer can't image your kitchen without the floral wallpaper, without the clutter, your collections, nor can she picture your empty dining and living room decorated. Instead, she wants to picture your kitchen as hers - with her favorite accessorizes and a fabulous dining and living room styled like her favorite home decor catalog. She wants to picture herself living in the home. A home stager provides the insight, talents and execution to help that buyer picture themselves in your home.
All Homes Need Staging
And why wouldn't you want to make sure your home moves to the front of the line when it goes on the market? We staged a house recently that was nice, but we made it awesome. The home hit the market on a Saturday and they had a firm contract on Monday. The home moved to the front of the line. All homes need to be staged.
You need to package the product well to sell, so hire a stager and listen to them. Home Staging isn't a new concept, it isn't a fad, and the majority of you can't do it yourself - I know, I've been staging homes for 17 years.
Here's why - it has been your haven and self image for years; you're emotionally connected to your home. You think your home is just fine, it's your taste, your collections, your image of lovely. Well, guess what? When you want to sell it, it's no longer your home but a house that needs to be sold and it needs to be packaged for the new buyers -which aren't you. As a house staging pro, we'll help you detach emotionally and offer professional advice on what needs to be done to get it ready for market.
